ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - December 05, 2016) - VoicePort LLC and iMedicare announced an agreement today to provide community pharmacists with patient-specific Medicare plan analyses via VoicePort's CLARO™ adherence application. The collaboration will allow current and future VoicePort clients the ability to access this valuable service and assist patients in making efficient and informed decisions when selecting a Medicare Advantage or Prescription Drug Plan.
CLARO™ is designed and deployed to assist pharmacists as proactive providers of adherence-related patient intervention solutions. "Our application has been shown to improve medication adherence and patient loyalty by providing services such as Med Sync, pick-up and refill reminder notifications, appointment scheduling, inbound IVR technology, Immunization Intelligence Services, data analytics and Star Ratings measurement/management," said Jeff Maltese, vice president of pharmacy strategic development for VoicePort. "Providing additional support to patients in selecting the right Medicare Part D plan is a perfect fit."
With an aging population, Medicare enrollment continues to expand as the baby boomer generation enters retirement. Increasing complexity with plan benefits and provider reimbursements leave patients and providers seeking a simple solution to help them select the right Medicare plan option. VoicePort's CLARO™ application utilizes its data integration and analytics expertise to communicate and display patient-specific financial forecasting based on available Medicare plans in the patient's home state.
"Most Medicare patients can save money by selecting the right plan during their open enrollment," said Chris Mann, CEO of VoicePort. "Our partnership is designed to facilitate a time-sensitive consultative interaction between the pharmacist and patient. That process also has implications for the pharmacy throughout the entire year as patients become newly eligible for Medicare and pharmacy plan reimbursements become more complex. We are thrilled to partner with iMedicare to expand our offerings within our Claro™ adherence platform," Mann continued. "Having the iMedicare solution available as a new and valued-added solution within our platform only adds to the positive offerings our clients already enjoy."
"We are excited to partner with VoicePort to simplify Medicare for more pharmacies and their patients. In a world of DIR fees and preferred networks, iMedicare is committed to using data intelligence and machine-learning algorithms to drive real ROI to every pharmacy customer with minimal effort," said Flaviu Simihaian, CEO of iMedicare.
